I'm trying to find some flatpicking contests near AR, OK, MO, TX area. I live in Fayetteville, AR. I don't know of any contests in AR, but there's one in Grove, OK. That's the only one I know of currently. If you know of other contests around PLEASE lemme know!!! Thanks!
Hey man sorry it took so long to get back to you. I found out I was in second coming out of the first round but apparently they didn't like my second round tunes so I fell out of the top 3. Oh well that's contests for you. Howd you do at grove?
Ya man the exercises will definitely pay off. There are so many to do and then go through the arpeggios scales and modes and different groupings and next thing you know you've spent 2 hours working on technique lol.
Angeline the baker was good but It didn't turn out to be as good of a contest tune arrangement as I thought. I've put black and white rag alabama jubilee and Washington county in the rotation due the 2 finals spots. I may rework some of the order to. Who knows.
hey we should probably get together and pick. i live down the hill in alma. my daughter lives in fayetteville and plays guitar and sings around the area quite a bit i occasionally sit in with her but right now she is playing a lot with a group called 3 penny acre. anyway, i'm up on the hill fairly often and sometimes pickwith some folks in siloam and bella vista. what do you think? i do like to play the cherokee shuffle and all of the standard fiddle tunes. ed carr

"Where does the time go? I've come to accept the physical limitations which come with age, but mine are of a degree which interfere with my ability to play for more than a couple of hours per day. It's disheartening, but I simply do the…"
"I hear you, buddy. I will hit the big 70 in January! YikesI But nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, will keep me from several hours a day on my guitar, banjo, and fiddle. I figure, now that I am retired, every day is Saturday! You are one…"
